The issue turned out to be driver related. (DOH! I forgot to try a different driver version when uninstalling and re-installing the drivers.) The OEM drivers caused the machine to have the "no internet access" symptom, and using a driver straight from Intel resulted in the system functioning correctly. The system is a Dell M6600 with an Intel 6200 WiFi ...

I've changed the drive mapping to the FQDN of the server, and haven't has any issues since.

Are the slow connections through your firewall or also on local segments? Are the non-Windows machines connecting the same way to the same services from the same ports on the firewall? That is, you have a mac and a windows machine plugged into the same switch in the closet, they both try to open the same email in the same web page. With that kind of ...

Long shot answer but something to look at... I had a Windows Server 2012 VM that would say No Internet Connection, though I could browse the web just fine. Could also ping and connect to M$ dns.msftcsi site without issue. What I found cleared the No Internet message, was re-enabling IPv6, even though we only use v4.

One connected to his home network and activated Office that way, while the other contacted me. Our small office uses a Watchguard router that includes a proxy server that requires no settings ...

As you mention that the computer is joined to a domain, it is possible that there is a group policy setting a custom NCSI server instead of the default one from Microsoft. You should be able to see if there is a custom server defined by looking under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet with the registry editor. ...

A different answer, probably not your case, but it's worth a shot: you said "no software firewall is enabled", so I'm assuming this include Windows Firewall too; but how did you disable it? If you by chance disabled it by actually stopping the Windows Firewall service, then you must re-enable it immediately. That's not the proper way to disable the system ...

You don't mention anything about a proxy, thus I'm assuming your network doesn't need one for Internet access; if this is the case, make sure you have no proxy configured in Internet Explorer, and also make sure you have no proxy configured for the system services; you can check this using the command netsh winhttp dump, and you can reset those settings to ...

Dealing specifically with the "No Internet Access" message, Windows uses NCSI (Network Connectivity Status Indicator) for this. This checks two things: A request for http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt - Page called ncsi.txt containing the following line of text with no terminating new line or other non-printing characters: Microsoft NCSI A request for DNS ...
